that's right.

Another idea just entered my mind (via marc): what about adding an extra
set of components to handle relative-to-absolute uri conversion, in
parallel with the source resolver factories.

For each scheme, it is then possible to define the relative uri
resolving strategy to use.

  <component-instance class="...DefaultAbsolutizer" name="*"/>
  <component-instance class="...NoAuthorityAbsolutizer" name="cocoon"/>
  <component-instance class="...NoAuthorityAbsolutizer" name="context"/>
  <component-instance class="...NotSupportedAbsolutizer" name="mailto"/>

This would also solve the backwards-incompatibility problem, and
generally seems like a nicer solution to me.
